Description of the guided tour

This tour is perfect for immersing yourself in the most daring fantasies envisioned by the modernist architect Antoni Gaudí, with a guided tour of two of his masterpieces that were declared World Heritage sites by UNESCO. Firstly, we’ll visit La Sagrada Familia. Because you’ll be accompanied by an accredited guide accredited by the Government of Catalonia, you won’t have to queue. We’ll discuss why this work was the culmination of his career and his spirituality, leading us to examine the symbolism behind each detail in the temple. Afterwards, we’ll take a 15-minute taxi ride to the Park Güell, another of the architect’s emblematic creations. We’ll cover the least-known details to the most wide-spread stories—the history of this space, which resembles a magic world filled with colours, shapes, plants, animals and unique houses… even a Greek temple!. Park Güell is another beautiful icon of the city. Gaudí built it for his friend and patron Eusebio Güell. If you want a more complete tour of Gaudi´s modernist work, book the 4-hour option, which also includes a visit to Casa Batlló and La Pedrera.
